About the role:
The NSW Government announced in June 2018 that the AM will receive $50 million to expand its touring exhibition halls in the first phase of the AM’s Master Plan. The new exhibition halls will open in early 2021 with the blockbuster exhibition, Tutankhamun: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh. As well as the transformed exhibition spaces, the refurbishment will also create new education facilities, space for a new museum shop and café and other amenities. A multi-million capital campaign will support these Phase 1 refurbishments and it is anticipated a future capital campaign will require significant philanthropic funding to support the second phase of the AM’s Master Plan.

The role works closely with the Capital Campaign Committee, the AM’s Executive Leadership Team and the Master Plan project team to secure private funding for the capital campaign.
